When a red poodle is alert, their eyes are wide open, ears are up and not forward, and their tail is low hanging and relaxed. This is the best time to approach your pup as they are unwinding tension and observing what is going on around them.

Signs of Aggression

Puppies make more than one type of growling noise. If a puppy, when playing, makes a low throaty noise, it means he’s happy. If the growl sounds more forceful and direct, then it could be that your pup is showing signs of aggression.
